Graffiti urges peo­ple to ‘kill a cop’

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - WORLD -

Philadelphia po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing spray-painted graffiti that urges peo­ple to “kill a cop,” and the po­lice union is of­fer­ing a $5,000 re­ward for in­for­ma­tion that leads to an ar­rest. Po­lice say they found mes­sages sprayed on three con­crete pil­lars Mon­day in a South Philadelphia neigh­bour­hood. The mes­sages said, “Kill a Cop Save a Life.” Some de­picted Molo­tov cock­tails. Au­thor­i­ties say some­one spray-painted the slo­gans “Kill a Cop” and “Right to Rebel” on homes in the same area last month. Po­lice be­lieve the same peo­ple are re­spon­si­ble for the graffiti, and as­sume ju­ve­niles are in­volved. Still, po­lice have alerted fed­eral Home­land Se­cu­rity of­fi­cials be­cause the threats were made against law en­force­ment.
